Buana's story

Buana is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in handmade jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones.

Buana has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. This is his story:

In 1990, Buana decided to learn to craft silver jewelry from a friend in Celuk. He learned it all, from the very basic skills like sanding, polishing, and making plates to very advanced techniques. Supported by his family, Buana has continued his profession as a silversmith. Buana shares his passion for his art: "I've been surrounded by handicrafts all my life. I am thankful to God for giving me such a great gift so I can make a living for my family. Not much, perhaps, but enough for our simple way of life."

"I want to send my gratitude for your kind support during this time when I need it."
